The trip to Kauai and Po’ipu Beach was amazing! If you haven’t taken an 8-day vacation free of telephone, email, and work – do so now. You will not regret it. Here’s a picture of Jim and I at a fabulous restaurant – Plantation Gardens. The food was divine. We had “Seafood Lau Lau” which was steamed shrimp, scallops, and Ono. If you look closely, you’ll see it on our table.
Right before I left, the folks at MaraNatha sent some of their yummy nut butters. We took the No-Stir Creamy & Sweet Peanut Butter with us. We had a full kitchen in our condo and frequently dined on peanut butter and jelly (homemade with Splenda!) toast and sandwiches. The No-Stir is DELICIOUS. You don’t have to deal with the obnoxious and messy oil at the top or anything. Just creamy goodness.
They also sent their Natural Cashew & Macadamia Butter which is absolutely YUM-A-LICIOUS (did I just make that word up?). You don’t want to put jam over this nut butter, it’s too good for that. Instead, dip apples into it, spread on toast, or eat a spoonful out of the jar (my preferred method).
I also discovered some great new recipes while on vacation – so stay tuned!
